LAKE COUNTY – The Lake County Sheriff’s Office is mourning the death of a law enforcement officer. 

“It is with great sadness that I report that one of our Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies, Ross Holcomb, 32, of Ronan, was found deceased in his home,” Lake County Sheriff Don Bell said.

Holcomb was found on April 4 at 1:20 p.m. The Missoula County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the death. “Preliminary investigation suggests the death to be suicide,” Bell said. 

Holcomb began his service with the Sheriff’s Office in June of 2017. He was a combat veteran for the United States Marine Corps. Bell thanked the Missoula County Sheriff’s Office and all other agencies assisting “during this incredibly difficult time.”
